The Pawn

In this example, the pawn can either move one square forward, or, since it hasn't moved yet, it may move up two squares.

When a pawn moves up two squares, it cannot leap over a piece. So if there is a piece directly in front of the pawn, it cannot make the two square move.

Remember: For this move, the pawn must move to an empty square.
